More than 100,000 bolts of lightning strike QLD area

A massive storm system hammered southern Queensland with destructive, near hurricane force wind gusts as 4-inch hail and heavy rain buffeted the region.

  • Flash-flooding swamped parts of Brisbane (pop: ~2.2 million), Australia’s third most populous city. [SE QLD urban conurbation around Brisbane  has a population of about 3.2 million.]
  • The storms affected the Brisbane, Ipswich, Sunshine and Lockyer council areas, causing crop damage in the Granite Belt and on the Darling Downs, reports said.
  • The storms caught the country’s Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) by surprise, as they failed to issue a specific warning until after the extreme weather event had hit parts of Brisbane.
  • Brisbane city received about 80mm of rain, and rainfall in access of 100mm was recorded elsewhere in the region over the weekend.
